at harvard kennedy school where right this very minute senior campaign managers from the romney and obama campaign and every other campaign are being debriefed by top political reporters and it is interesting because obama clearly sees that he has a mandate out of the election on fiscal cliff issues. even though it wasn't a huge issue in the debate the white house is behaving like it has that mandate. what you have been seeing is republicans showing signs of flexibility and i am not just talking john boehner saying revenue is on the table. we have republican senators saying they will stand up to the grover norquist tax pledge. they're willing to break it which is pretty big news. we also have the influential member of congress, republican tom cole saying we have got to agree to extend the tax cut just for those people making $250,000 and below and letting the more wealthy be taxed. definitely flexibility but what you see from democrats is an unwillingness to do serious entitlement reform that would lead to reductions in spending. they want to kick the can down the road and do more of the
likelihood president obama would win the election. he would have a 2% to 4% increase if romney had one, and they have shifted their focus now that we have for sure essentially status quo political alignment. we know the past two years we have had difficulties. quickly shifting the focus produced prospects of the outcome for the fiscal cliff. lori: have we seen the worst? or will we need more time to sort it out? >> one should have a fully mutual acquisition. the fundamental backdrop for the equity market, you still have a pretty good economic backdrop and the economic data has improved the past couple of months. valuations are still reasonable. very accommodating fed and the reelection of president obama assures us the next chairman is likely to be a fairly dovish one as well. lori: so the debate over policies right now the fiscal cliff front and center, the overall health and evaluation of the stock market is pretty good. >> absolutely. equity risk is low compared to alternatives. plus economic data that has been improving. averaging 170,000. lori: we have breaking news, thank you for
are going to hit a wall here. this is what governor romney, paul ryan have been talking about. ryan's two years of budget proposals passed by the house, killed by the democrats in the senate saying, look, we know the laws of economics kick in here, and these programs are going to come to a screeching halt because there is no more money, so what we'd like to do now, before the crisis, is try to reform these programs in order to save them, not destroy them. dagen: i said this for years, social security's an easy fix because you're not dealing with people's health. social security is just, you know, changing the retirement age and changing how the initial benefit is calculated, and that's pretty much it. it seems so simple, but it's hard, nevertheless, to get the republicans a large group of them, to get excited about doing this so do you think that it doesn't happen until, well, until it has to happen? that's a few years from now. >> interesting question because i think one of the big untold stories about the election, you know, yes, barack obama was re-elected, and democrats picked up seat
understood was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was, when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced responsible approach and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that was an important debate and the majority of voters agreed with me. by the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. so we've got a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction we've got to do it in a balanced way. the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage in order to go ahead and let that happen? or, can we all step back and say, here's something we agree on. we don't want middle class taxes to go up. let's go ahead and lock that in. that will be good for the economy. it will be good consumer, take the edge off the fiscal cliff. and no, let's also then commit ourselves to broader package of deficit reduction that includes entitlement changes and includes potentially tax reform as well a

the old romney 47% think. why should i add to it. how n the heck did it get to 47% not paying any federal income tax? [talking over each other] a big part of it was ronald reagan's in the reform act of 1886 that, you know, increased reductions and what have you. when i got out of school, probably before both of you were born, it was in the middle 20s. and the direction we are going, guys, it will be in the mid- 50s. in the argument of so-called fairness, we are telling, you know, the top few% that pay 43% of all taxes, it is only fair you pay more. i hope it will be a very welcome outcome. connell: largely, i am sure, it is 2% versus 98% when you pull it. it is very popular, the idea of raising taxes on the rich. they favor extending the bush tax cuts except for the wealthy. neil: you assume that the rich guy pay for it. what i would not do at that table, i would not -- about the appetizer. then, what happens is we penalize those who provide -- believe me, i am not one of these, by the way, nothing wrong with that. i just think it is a disjointed argument. one thing romney did get right,
since it peaked in 2004. president bush who supported reform ran for every election. mitt romney getting 27%. now, post relaxing, or republicans are winning up to immigration reform. >> what we need is a demand base that allows companies that cannot find american workers to bring the foreign workers that they need, as many as they need. peter: marco rubio, the son of cuban immigrants is trying to get the kickstart of immigration. children who were born here should be given the cells, they could eventually become citizens. tracy: peter barnes, thank you very much. reports on housing kind of lifted sentiment on wall street today and provided the latest sign that maybe the recovery in the housing sector is on positive footing. my next guest does not seem to think so. financing or the lack thereof could be a threat. you do not buy these numbers? >> housing is improving. prices are up year over year. demand is up. in some cases, prematurely. with that said, we are a long way back to a normalized market. they be 305,000 new homes this year. we are moving in the right direction. housing is far
the romney victory. now the issues you raised one advice you give? >> look beyond the valley. local -- global gdp and we see around the world the trough is likely to be seen and corporate earnings and the u.s. are likely to be tracing out with a flat shape thinking we have come in through the slump in earnings so stick with the equity exposure. don't like to not to anticipate a big sell-off. lori: we have dividend payers with the crux of the interview with the company's moving up the payout date to avoid the likely tax is that the stock by? with an historic low interest rates? >> i think so. looking at the yield of a little more than 1.5% u.k. gilt variety of companies paying 3% or more. focus on the history of the track record of increasing their dividend and focus on those with buy recommendations. lori: do not be a big part of that is great. but look at the overall capital gains there will be fewer dollars invested or will the drama ago one slowdown because of that concern? with just fewer dollars in the market? will people hold theer cash? >> then they will lose more because they get zero

it as a legacy issue. this was not, these were not acrimonious calls because banks leaned towards mitt romney in a big way. maybe there is, but i am telling you replacing two bank executives and labor coming out of the white house. these were senior people inside obama's administration telling the bank executives yes, we are as you know, the devil is always in the details. who is going to be treasury secretary? that will go a long way determining how the fiscal cliff deficit issue is sorted out. odds-on favorite is the chief of staff, people say the simpson-bowls tax reform plan is still in the running. if he gets it, you will see an interesting negotiation. bowls is probably the most favored democrat in the house and someone republicans feel is serious about a comprehensive tax reform. if the president goes bowls, two interesting. if he goes with jack lew, who is outside favorite, is much more partisan liberal. that adds another dynamic. the conversations that are going on right now. they are not acrimonious and the obama administration to say we are serious about dealing with the deficit an
